Semi trucks and tractor trailers cause a disproportionate number of accidents in the U.S. each year. Because of the size and weight of these trucks,
drivers and passengers of smaller vehicles are at an enormous disadvantage in the case of a collision. At over 10,000 pounds, an 18 wheeler is
4-5 times the weight of a typical sedan. Cars and their passengers can easily be crushed by tractor trailers, causing serious injuries and death.
Failure to adhere to trucking regulations, aggressive and negligent driving, and drug and alcohol abuse sometimes contribute to collisions between
trucks and cars.
